BRATTLEBORO — The Brattleboro branch of the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) will offer a series of lectures this month on art appreciation, with Mara Williams, the chief curator of Brattleboro Museum & Art Center.

The three lectures are scheduled for 1 to 3 p.m. on Mondays, Jan. 13, 20, 27 (snow date Feb. 3), at the New England Youth Theatre, 100 Flat St., Brattleboro.

One of the great joys of viewing art is tussling meaning out of an object made by another human being. Central to this effort is the object's physicality. Exploring how surface texture, formal relationships, gestural nuance, palette or patina support the content of the artwork is a rewarding endeavor.

Williams has been curating exhibits at Brattleboro Museum & Art Center for 30 years. Her area of expertise is modern and contemporary art.

The lectures are $6 per session or $15 for all three.
